    Indeed, this culture and mentality has to go. People buying the G310s are openly admitting that they are allowing BMW to rip them off and they are not ashamed of it. But who am I to say this? Afterall I own just a puny little 155cc domestic motorcycle that is far from being "Premium"

    Off-Topic Note:
    As long you are open good at heart and b*lls of steel, nothing can make you more or less and shame you infront of someone who own more "Premium" things than you!

    Be it bikes, gears, car, phones, laptops, clothes, shoes, bags, watches, electronic gadgets etc etc! We Indians have an intuition to associate anything expensive is premium and gives them a status symbol, but at the EOD we all know that's not the case and that they are just getting taken for ride.

    But reality is that people know that one made a fool of himself when he had so many other VFM products.
    If the person is happy with his choices and goes on with his life like rest of us then I have no problem, but if he starts to look down on someone else and judges others for not having something "Premium", then that's where I have a problem.

    Hope you got what I was inferring
